Christmas and New Year arrangements at Newcastle parkrun – 2016

Saturday 17th December – usual parkrun starting at 9:00AM but with Christmas themed fancy dress encouraged and prizes for the the best costumes (runners and volunteers eligible). Santa Claus has agreed to provide the lead sleigh bike again this year I think although he does seem to have an issue with the alignment of the stars this year. Coffee or mulled wine and mince pies afterwards at the Café in the park, usual menu also available.

Christmas Eve - usual parkrun starting at 9:00AM. Full set of volunteers needed, please volunteer if you can.

Christmas Day - extra parkrun starting at 9:30AM. Please note that there can be no doubling up of parkruns on Christmas Day even if, because of possible staggered event start times, you are able to get from one event to another in time to start at the second event.

New Years Eve – usual Saturday parkrun starting at 9:00AM. Full set of volunteers needed, please volunteer if you can.

New Years Day – no parkrun at Newcastle but there may be extra parkruns arranged at other venues in the North East or there is the New Years Day resolution run on the Town moor – 10km, two X-country laps of the Town moor. Just the job to clear a hangover!

 

I Am Team GB event – 27th August 2016

Newcastle parkrun will be an official "I Am Team GB" event this Saturday 27th August. We will be part of the nation's biggest ever sports day to help celebrate Team GB's best ever overseas Olympics medal tally.
So please come along and show your support for GB's Olympic Heroes by wearing red, white and blue kit.
Other nationalities are very welcome to celebrate their own Olympic Heroes by wearing their countries colours; there are no national prejudices at Newcastle parkrun. I can't Imagine such a thing.
Oh, and we just might be able to run our normal course this Saturday for a change! Fingers crossed.
See you then.
Ian

 

Christmas and New Year arrangements at Newcastle parkrun

Saturday 19th December – usual parkrun starting at 9:00AM but with Christmas themed fancy dress encouraged and prizes for the the best costumes (runners and volunteers eligible). Santa Claus has agreed to provide the lead sleigh bike again this year. Coffee and mince pies afterwards at the Café in the park, usual menu also available; café staff will be attired in their best Christmas jumpers to welcome you all.

Christmas Day - extra parkrun starting at 10:00AM, the latest time allowed by HQ. We had to cancel the event on Christmas Day last year so hope that if an icy morning the later start will allow time for the ice to melt. We will need enough volunteers to come forward for the event to go ahead.

Boxing Day – usual parkrun starting at 9:00AM. Full set of volunteers needed, please volunteer if you can.

New Years Day – no parkrun at Newcastle but there may be extra parkruns arranged at other venues in the North East or there is the New Years Day resolution run on the Town moor – 10km, two X-country laps of the Town moor. Just the job to clear a hangover!

Newcastle parkrun cancelled on 11th July

Dear parkrunners
This is to confirm the announcement made before the start of yesterdays event that we are unable to run parkrun on Saturday 11th July. This is because of preparations taking place on the course for the Pretty Muddy 5km event later on that day.
So you will need to embark on another spot of tourism to enjoy your weekly parkrun fix on 11th July.
Normal service will be resumed at Newcastle parkrun on 18th July.
Ian.

 

Newcastle parkrun -weather warning

Newcastle parkrun is on tomorrow 4th July - subject to weather conditions.

Who would have thought I'd be issuing this type of severe weather warning in July. The BBC weather site has severe thunderstorms and giant hail forecast to pass through the region overnight and early morning. We won't go ahead if these coincide with parkrun time tomorrow. Keep your fingers crossed!

Ian.
